The WordPress themes space sure is an exciting and interesting space to be working in, with new theme shops opening their doors on a daily basis. Along with this, arose a need for theme marketplaces, where theme shops can showcase their products to a wide audience, purchasing from a collective catalog, of sorts. ThemeForest is one of the biggest players (if not the biggest) in this field.
Today, we’d like to announce that WooThemes themes are now also available for purchase via ThemeForest.
It has been almost exactly 2 years since our previous foray into selling on ThemeForest, selling Drupal and ExpressionEngine themes. Since then, much has changed within WooThemes, as well as in the WordPress themes space (and at ThemeForest).
We feel there are many of our existing customers, as well as some potential new customers, who are already purchasing items within the Envato Marketplaces. These customers have established a process for themselves by which they purchase the multiple assets they will be using on a project (for example, a theme, stock photography, graphics and code snippets). We feel this is of benefit to existing customers who are also on ThemeForest, as well as showcasing WooThemes to a new audience.
Today, we’re launching this offering with the following themes available for purchase:
- Delicious Magazine
Products, licenses, GPL, oh my!
Envato approached WooThemes a couple months back when they were exploring the option to offer a 100% GPL licensing as an option to their authors – knowing WooThemes is a proud GPL advocate. They wanted to make a big splash with this announcement and we are honoured they chose us as their official launch partner.
WooThemes is the first theme provider to offer fully GPL licensed themes on ThemeForest. Rest assured, the theme purchase, whether from ThemeForest or from WooThemes.com, retains the same fully GPL license.
What happens when I purchase from ThemeForest?
Customers who purchase WooThemes themes via their ThemeForest account are still WooThemes customers. You will be provided with the same love, care and attention we provide our direct-purchase customers with, as well as the support package we offer.
How do I redeem my purchase?
We’ve made this process as easy and painless as possible.
- When purchasing a WooThemes theme from ThemeForest, you’ll receive a purchase code in your e-mail inbox. This will come directly from ThemeForest.
- Once received, you’d then either login to your existing WooThemes account (if you have one) or register for a new WooThemes account.
- Once at your “My Account” screen on WooThemes.com, click the “Redeem ThemeForest Purchase” button and enter your purchase code into the field provided.
- That’s all there is to it! You should now see your ThemeForest purchase on your “My Account” screen, as well as have access to support for the purchased products.
We look forward to seeing how this launch fits into your workflows and, to new customers who arrive with ThemeForest purchases… welcome!
